Head is itchy when wearing hats.

I love to wear hats, however, when i wear them my head gets really itchy. Is this dandruff? i use Head and Shoulders dandruff shampoo every day, no change.

Any help would be great!

Chris.

Re: Head is itchy when wearing hats.

I Know when I wear a hat my head gets itchy too. I think it's cause your scalp is not getting enough circulation and the moisture makes it itch. I also would not use Head and Shoulders shampoo everyday, sometimes that makes the scalp worse, Also I would try not to wash your hair everyday.

Hope I helped

Re: Head is itchy when wearing hats.

Hi,

It DOESN'T hurt your hair to wash it everyday. Use a mild shampoo and a conditioner. DON'T use a dandruff shampoo if you don't have dandruff.


My head itches when I wear a hat. I think it's "going against the grain" of the natural direction of the hair and if it rubs, causing more stimulation.

What is your hair texture like? Are your hats tight? What kind of hats?

If it's itchy then don't wear hats

Re: Head is itchy when wearing hats.

I'm not gonna not wear hats cuz i like to wear hats. My hear texture, i don't really know how to describe it, and the main hat i wear is a flex fit hat so its kind of tight not really. I also don't use dandruff shampoo for nothing. During the day if i run my hand through my hair, i see all this stuff come off of it like dust or something. Im pretty sure its dandruff, what do you think?

Re: Head is itchy when wearing hats.

It could be....unless you are using products that you're allergic to.
Try Scalpicin treatment. It's salicilic acid which will help in keeping the flakes down. It also helps with itching.

Do you wash your hat often enough? If you wear it daily, I would think once every few weeks would be good in a mild dishwashing detergent.

Do you brush your hair often? Do you blow dry it? Sometimes if you do that, it will give good circulation to the head. ARe you losing any hair? Have you had your thyroid checked out? Try and increase your vitamin B with a mixed B complex.

Do you remove your hat at all during the day? or is it an all day thing?
